About two weeks ago, I presented a paper to “a curious group of students” who wanted to know about the oil and gas industry. The presentation was made online, live via google hangout and a youtube channel. I think that the event went well, and so was my performance!

Part 3: Malaysia is one of the most respected Muslim countries in The World and here is why!

I have traveled to some places including most of the South East Asian countries and the Far Eastern too. There’s no doubt that these countries have a lot in common with Malaysia especially if we talk about the Nusantara countries like Indonesia, Brunei, Southern Thailand, and Singapore. Even if we visit nations like Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Timor Leste, there are still some similarities.

PEACE, KEAMANAN SEJAGAT – APAKAH SUMBANGAN KITA SEBAGAI RAKYAT?

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Keamanan,

“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people”
(Rakyat tidak sepatutnya takut akan kerajaan. Kerajaanlah yang sepatutnya takut akan rakyat.)

“Peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice.”
(Keamanan ialah bukan ketika tiada peperangan, tetapi ketika keadilan diwujudkan.)

Dua ungkapan di atas amatlah bersesuaian dengan topik kita pada kali ini, iaitu keamanan. Hati dan minda kita begitu peka terhadap keadaan yang tenang dan teratur, kerana ianya memberikan keamanan ke dalam jiwa kita. Keamanan itu, jika hilang daripada kehidupan seharian kita maka hati dan jiwa kita akan menjadi sakit, tidak tenteram.

This is ‘The Chronological of Events’ from 1992 to 2001 (and extended). This is a classic case of “From Hero to Zero“, but who knows, it can turn out to be “From Zero to Hero” again very soon (if you know what I mean?) *sigh*

So, please go figure and connect the dots.

These facts were painstakingly collected and researched from various reputable news sites around the globe (see references at the bottom of this article):

ENJOY!

There is no probability in religion. Only in science.

If you are a faithful religionist, to you: Everything is preordained and what will happen, will always happen. What will not occur, will never occur. In maths, the calculation would be either 1 or 0. We call it The Matrix!

Part 2: Sepak Takraw is a unique sport from Malaysia and we are the best in the World!

According to some historical documents, Malaysia is the sole inventor of “Sepak Takraw” which was originally called Sepak Raga.

However, Thailand, being the mightiest Kingdom in the South East Asian region at that time competed with the Malacca Kingdom by declining to admit that Sepak Takraw was originated from Malaysia. The Thais said that Sepak Takraw was originated from Thailand, and the game should be called Takraw instead!
